Tu-95MS hit targets in Syria with X-101 cruise missiles

66
Official representative Ministry of Defence Major General Igor Konashenkov of Russia, during the briefing, reported on a new phase of air strikes against the positions occupied by terrorists in Syria. The Tu-95MS strategic bombers delivered strikes, using air-launched cruise missiles against ISIL (* prohibited in the Russian Federation) and "Frenta al-Nusra" (*) fighters. Bombers went up to the sky from the Engels airfield in the Saratov region.

Tu-95MS hit targets in Syria with X-101 cruise missiles




From the message of General Konashenkov:
In 12 hours 6 minutes, strategic missile-carrying bombers Tu-95MS struck cruise missiles at targets of international terrorist groups in Syria. In the airspace of the SAR, the crews of strategic rocket carriers carried out launches of X-101 cruise missiles on the opened intelligence of the most important IG (*) and "al-Nusra" (*) objects in the Deir ez-Zor and Idlib provinces.

It was noted that when the missile-carriers entered the airspace of Syria, they were met for further escort by Su-30 and Su-35 fighters, taking off from the Khmeymim airfield.

Igor Konashenkov:
Terrorist command posts, areas of militant concentration and accumulation of equipment, as well as ammunition depots were destroyed by sudden blows. Objective control data confirmed the defeat of all targets.


In total, Tu-95MS aircraft covered a distance of about 7 thousand km, having completed refueling in the air with the help of Il-78 tankers, and returned to the home airfield.

      The Tu95 now has become a steep “strategist”, without refueling, the flight range like that of the Tu22m3, is of different interest: why is it that with such a Launch at 4500 km, it starts up x101 over Mediterranean, then over Iran? Range in fact is less than 1000km.

                  It happens but not always. In my material part, I can say that it’s overpriced, on others, too, in part because it’s possible that on some types of aircraft the outdated equipment of the aircraft does not allow to realize all the possibilities of new types of TSA, somewhere the weapons are accepted “damp”, I think that in the USSR the designers really slightly underestimated the capabilities of the weapon, and its real capabilities in the future were a pleasant surprise, now unfortunately it is often necessary to observe the opposite. Somewhere the Redoubt does not go, somewhere the latest radio stations do not give the specified parameters, of course, everything is being finalized and improved in the process, perhaps our 101st does not yet give out the characteristics that were planned and I believe that these periodic launches are the result of their constant development to the specified characteristics. However, my opinion is naturally not the ultimate truth, but as Dalnik, I know for sure that with 101 there were problems with both the Tu160 and 95MS, for which both industrialists and the military received a hat.

                    True ... there was a thing ... but, on the basis of the 101st, they are already making the ground version. Of course, work is underway to improve it, no doubt, but I think that with regard to this missile, the parameters are not underestimated for itself ... at the same time, the BZ carried by the missile must be taken into account ... 450 kg is one thing, and 200 is another thing. ..

              Range is very dependent on the flight mission. If you need far, it flies in near space, or a little lower. It does not maneuver and does not fly at supersonic. Economically flies. On maneuvers near the target, supersonic fuel is consumed very well. There is also a higher density of the medium. Hence the shorter range.

                  If we talk only about these, yes. There supersonic sacrificed to range. But if we talk about the tactics of application, I think that for them the above is also relevant.

They say that the Su-34 can carry two X-101s . I would like to watch a video from Syria with him. As a taxpayer, I am very curious about how the new rocket technology works. I'm waiting ...
    I look forward to when Admiral Grigorovich approaches Syria from Greece. The crew’s experience with Caliber launches is excellent. Let the guys practice on the barmales .... And the two boats on the Black Sea Fleet - Novorossiysk and Stary Oskol have not yet marked off with adult launches. I hope that the videographers of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will please me and the rest of the citizens of the Russian Federation by shooting launches of new missiles from Syria and the surrounding area.
